Quality of Teaching

When you visit the Learning Center, you will hear plenty of giggling and happy sounds. Our teachers are highly qualified and educated. All are experienced and well trained with continuing education. Our child to teacher ratios are lower than what the state requires to better engage the children. All our staff ar CPR/AED certified
